Judge Denies Motions In JCPS Suit

A Jeffrerson circuit judge has denied a request by Louisville attorney Ted Gordon to reopen a suit that challenges the Jefferson County Public Schools' student assignment plan.The suit claims that JCPS has been in violation of a state law that allows parents to enroll their children in the school closest to their home. Maze ruled last month that enrollment does not guarantee attendance at a given school.Gordon filed two motions, one asking Maze to reconsider his decision. The other requested that he reopen the case to allow new testimony based on recent statements made by school officials.Maze overruled both motions. Gordon says he wants to file an appeal of Maze's original ruling directly to the Kentucky Supreme Court.
